"Orlando" is a novel by Virginia Woolf, first published in 1928. The book is a fictional biography of the protagonist, Orlando, who starts as a young nobleman in Elizabethan England and mysteriously changes sex midway through the story, becoming a woman. The narrative spans over three centuries, following Orlando's life and adventures. The novel explores themes of gender, identity, and the nature of biography. It is considered a semi-biographical novel, inspired by Woolf's friend and lover, Vita Sackville-West. Orlando's character is portrayed as a writer, and the novel often delves into the nature of literature and the creative process. Woolf uses the narrative to critique and parody traditional biographical writing and historical conventions. The novel incorporates elements of fantasy and satire, with Orlando living through various historical periods and interacting with famous literary figures. "Orlando" is an important work of modernist literature, known for its innovative style, exploration of gender and identity, and its commentary on English literature and history.
